Accident at Keg River, AB


1999-05-12: C- GNAS, a Cessna 210 with a pilot and three passengers, was enroute VFR from Peace River to Mobil Bistcho when the a/c experienced an engine failure. The pilot initially observed a loss of oil pressure followed by a loss of engine power. He carried out a forced landing in a farm field about 1/2 mile from the Keg River airstrip. On touchdown, the nosegear broke off and there was some damage to the propeller and cowling. The four occupants were not injured. The cause of the engine failure is not known at this time. TSB have been informed and more information may be available. OPI - System Safety UPDATE Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that the engine threw a connecting rod, which knocked out the magneto and caused the oil to escape from the resulting hole. It was reported that the damage to the a/c is extensive and may be beyond economic repair. The operator will submit an SDR to Transport Canada.
